Hi, I'm Jana
An English trainer & Neurolanguage® Coach

I work with individuals in the sustainability and regeneration sectors to help them improve their English. 

I come from County Down, Ireland. I grew up in a place filled with beauty, but I didn’t always see it. So much so that the first thing I did when I was 18 was leave. I spent seven years abroad, studying and working, most recently living in the South of France until May of last year. I have since been living back in Ireland, reconnecting with the land that I will always call home, no matter where life takes me next. The phrase ‘you have to leave home to come home’ which I heard here (6:34) is poignant to me, and very much my case. I have a deep appreciation and love for this island and its culture, that I am still rediscovering. 

My formal education is in Modern Languages and Cultures. I studied French, Spanish, Catalan and Italian. I have always been pulled abroad and been intrigued by different languages. I love connecting with people from different countries and cultures, which is why I enjoy coaching so much. I have met so many incredibly interesting and unique humans through coaching over the past few years who don’t realise how much they have indirectly taught me and changed my perspectives. 

As well as coaching, I am also a Pilates teacher. This gives me the opportunity to connect with people locally a few times a week, and allow me to provide support a physical and emotional level. 

If you work in any sectors related to sustainability or regeneration, I would love to work with you. Book a free call with me via the contact form or email me directly to have a chat!


Background

 As a Neurolangauge® coach I understand your brain, and how to work through learning blocks. 

The greatest barrier to your success is your fear of failure. I will help you regain your confidence in your ability to clearly communicate in English. 

Neurolanguage® coaching takes a brain-based approach to language learning. Your language learning journey is unique, and the coaching is personalised to your particular needs and desired outcomes. Coaching sessions are an opportunity for you to focus on developing your English skills in an environment where you feel supported and encouraged. You will never be judged for mistakes or ‘failure’. (There is no failure in language learning, only lessons).

Because the sessions are tailored to you, the topics we discuss, the activities we do, and the materials we use will be chosen by you so that you are learning and preparing for future and current scenarios when you will need English as a tool. 

I’m here to guide you through your English development journey and to help you bloom in your own time. I’m here to listen, support and give you feedback during each session, to be excited for you and with you about your evolution and seeing you arrive at your potential. 

I receive joy from your joy, insight from your insights, enthusiasm and celebration for you as you grow, learn and develop. 

The result is a collaboration, a regenerative relationship where we learn from each other. You already possess the ability to find your voice, I am here to explore that with you and show you that you can. 

Can’t wait to see you there!

Client feedback 

I have used many online methods which did not help me to improve my speaking skills. I was also stressed every time I had to interact with a native speaker. With Jana I found a motivational & adaptable coach. the sessions are an hour of relaxation and personal enrichment which end with the feeling of being a step closer to greater fluency and confidence in the practice of this beautiful language.
